Where did white people come from?.  I found this to be somewhat interesting.  Apparently we are fairly new on the global stage - only about 8,000 years ago if this information is correct.  

They also mentioned the enzyme for digesting milk,. which is also recent.   There is no doubt that I have that gene - I am a big milk drinker, but I have heard that it is mostly Caucasians and Africans who possess it- races with a cattle herding culture.   People of Asian descent and I think Mediterranean are more likely to be lactose intolerant.   Being able to digest milk was a big survival advantage - a few percent which sounds small, but is enough to change the gene pool in just a few generations.  

They are not quite as sure about white skin, but increased UV sensitivity might also help with vitamin D formation during the dark winters of northern Europe.
Ancient DNA from skeletons shows dramatic natural selection on skin color and height in many Europeans

This offers an interesting look at the history of this region.

Did you know that people born in U.S. territories like Guam, Puerto Rico, The Virgin Islands, and American Samoa cannot vote in presidential elections? I did not know that. Even worse: natives of American Samoa are not even considered American…
